Language certificates
If you are not a native English speaker, please take your English language test well in advance!  We must receive your results before the application deadline. EHL's institution code for the Test of English as a Foreign Language is 9090, and our admissions code is 02. We also accept International English Language Testing system results. 

GMAT report
You must submit an original GMAT report that includes verbal, quantitative, analytical writing and integrated reasoning scores. Make sure to indicate our school's name as "Ecole hôtelière de Lausanne", so your official test results will be sent directly to our school.

Please note that we also accept GRE scores.

Official transcripts are required from all colleges, universities and professional schools you have attended and must include a comprehensive record of courses completed and grades awarded.

Certification of documents submitted
All transcripts must be either originals or certified true copies of the original documents. No photocopies will be accepted unless they have been officially certified. This means that every photocopy must carry an official stamp and seal from your school or from the appropriate legal authority, such as an embassy, notary or mayoral office.

Translation of credentials
For all transcripts that are not in English, French, German or Italian, you must supply a certified translation into English or French together with the original. The translation should be accompanied by complete information on the school or college and an explanation of the grading scale.

Two letters of recommendation from academia or industry are required and should be emailed directly to EHL by your referees using the form at the end of this page.

Please choose one of the following topics for your essay, so that we can learn more about you, your ambitions and your interests:

  1. Which current trend in the hospitality industry fascinates you most? What role do you see yourself playing in this industry in the future?
  2. Choose an achievement and a failure from your professional or personal life and describe why you see each experience as such. What lessons did you learn from each?

Your essay should be at least 500 words long. Please type your name on each page.

Motivation letter
If you are not a hospitality professional, please explain why you wish to switch into the hospitality field and how you believe EHL's EMBA program can help you achieve your goals.
Your letter should be at least 300 words long. Please type your name on each page.
